Use foil to make fun-to-open packages and to protect the potatoes during cooking.
To cook in the oven, place the parcels in a preheated oven at 220°C, gas mark 7 for 35-40 minutes, then finish as above.
If you want to use sweet potatoes or butternut squash instead of potatoes, peel and cut the vegetables into 5cm pieces, then wrap them in foil with fresh rosemary or thyme, a slice of garlic and add seasoning. Their natural sugars caramelise in the heat making them beautifully sweet. Cook for 20 minutes, turning occasionally using tongs.
If you have time you could also wrap large baking potatoes and cook them in the outer layer of coals for up to 1½ hours for fluffy perfection.
